How to Register
ASHA offers three easy ways to register for the Convention—online, by fax, or by mail. We recommend reviewing the registration fees, rate deadlines, and policies before you register.
The online Convention registration process requires you to register using the same membership category that is indicated in ASHA's database. To make your Convention registration experience as easy as possible, you may wish to first check your membership status and category to make sure that your dues are current. International registrants may also wish to review Visa information to help facilitate their travel to the United States. Hotel reservations and Convention registration may be completed in one easy online process, or separately if you choose.
ASHA's housing reservation service for the 2016 Convention in Philadelphia will open on August 1. ASHA selects a wide variety of quality hotels within close proximity of the convention center and negotiates the best possible rates at price points to fit every budget. Many of the hotels in Philadelphia are walkable from the convention center; shuttle service will be offered for attendees staying at the hotels in our official ASHA block located further from the center.
The roommate forum is available for you to log on and connect with other members who are looking to share a hotel room.
